I'm praying that life will slow down now and I can get back to being me. In the midst of all the craziness of life, I decided to resign from my job. It was a very hard decision to make because I truly enjoyed working part time and loved the people. But, I wanted to be fair to the company. They had been so generous with allowing me the time away from the office to help with caring for my family. I didn't know how long it would take and I didn't want to take advantage of their kindness, so I resigned.
A perk of my new found freedom, I decided that I would take a road trip, all by myself!!! I loved it! I drove up to visit my brother, sister-in-law and nephew in Indiana. It took me about 10 1/2 hours and I only stopped once :) I had the joy of staying there a few days and getting some extra cuddles in with my adorable perfect nephew. I was in heaven. I even babysat one afternoon so Michael and Amanda could go on a date.
After a few days, I headed to Pittsburgh for a quick stop on my way to West Virginia. I got to take my Pap out on a lunch date. It was awesome :)

family. As usual, it was a wonderful time. We did some yard work to tidy up the place, then ate A LOT and road our bikes. We did a 27 mile ride one day....ouch!!! My butt was pretty sore that night!

I had a great trip - and found it pretty fun driving myself all over the place. Can't wait to do it again soon!!
